Buxton Helps Twins Beat Orioles Again
BALTIMORE, MD ( Minnesota News Network) - The first Major League run batted in for rookie Byron Buxton meant victory for the Twins Saturday night.
His single in the seventh inning broke a 2-2 tie against the Baltimore Orioles. Minnesota still hasn't lost to the O's since last season. The win was a nice birthday present for manager Paul Molitor, who turned 59 Saturday. Casey Fein picked up the win in relief of Kyle Gibson and Kevin Jepsen nailed down his seventh save. There were no homers in the game. The Twins go for the sweep today behind Mike Pelfrey. Orioles starter Kevin Gausman has lost three straight starts and has never beaten Minnesota.
